Spyro: Season of Ice DX

Hack of Spyro Advance

Description:

Spyro: Season of Ice DX is a ROM Hack of Spyro Advance for the Game Boy Advance, that uses the English retranslation hack (http://www.romhacking.net/translations/6421/) as a base.

In addition to the benefits that the above re-translation offers, DX also adjusts several aspects of the game to provide a smoother gameplay experience:

  • The Fairy Requirement to reach the Final Boss (Grendor’s Lair 2) has been adjusted so that the player no longer needs every fairy in the game. Now, only 90 fairies are needed, meaning Grendor can be defeated and the game can be finished with just 91. Three lines of Bianca’s dialog have been adjusted to accommodate this change.
  • All maps in the game have been adjusted to mark the location of all Flammable Objects with an ‘X’. Due to the objects resetting upon death, this makes hunting them in one go significantly less tedious.
  • In addition to the above change, all Fairy Home Worlds now mark the entrances to other areas with portal graphics (ripped from the sequel Spyro: Season of Flame). This makes locating all level entrances easier.
  • Suzan’s dialog in Lava Prairie has been adjusted to make mention of the map feature, and to explain the purpose of the ‘X’s.
  • The Professor’s dialog for the ‘Halt the Honey-Making’ task in Honey Marsh has been adjusted to be more specific as to what the player needs to do. The previous hint towards charging was somewhat misleading, as it could cause the bees to despawn if they fell too far behind.
  • Minor grammatical fixes in several pieces of dialog.
